I saw I got a mention. I've been using Dreamcast PSUs for over 10 years now. They're cheap, plentiful, easy to wire up, and ultra-reliable:
I quote this knowing damn well I should recap and replace the fan in at least 1 or 2 of my Sun PSU's that I haven't serviced, but....
it's only a few years newer but a Sega Lindbergh PSU will drop (dimensionally) into a Net City, Sega even sold them with a horizontal mount and wiring adapter to make it drop in.Just kicking around ideas, does anyone know of a suitable PSU that fits within the footprint of the Sun? The idea here is for me to be able to drop a new PSU into my Net Cities. I would think a couple options;
Yeah, one of my net cities actually came to me that way. Nice power supplies.it's only a few years newer but a Sega Lindbergh PSU will drop (dimensionally) into a Net City, Sega even sold them with a horizontal mount and wiring adapter to make it drop in.
I've pretty much got rid of all my NAOMI PSUs and replaced them with Lindberghs at this point.
I wonder if Sanwa gets these from Mean Well?Sanwa still makes a NEW JVS PSU: https://www.tops-game.jp/products/detail.php?product_id=2610 it's over $200 though. still probably more cost effective to recap and original, even if you paid someone else to do it.
Not from Mean Well but @dewmansnk makes a great interface PCB for the Mean Well QP-150-3A making it a drop in replacement for JVS cabinets.I wouldn't be surprised, though do any of the meanwell supplies have a connector like that? it seems to map to the JVS pinout pretty well.
that looks like an interesting solution but that pinout looks like it's Vewlix/AWSD specific not generic JVS, unless there is another board variant I'm not seeing?
Regarding the Sanwa JVS PSU, it is indeed a rebranded Mean Well.
Correct. It is built for Sanwa though, you won't find one with a Mean Well badge on it.
